It varies a bit depending on the tranny, safest way is to buy a couple 1-gallon jugs to be sure you have enough. (Be sure to catch all the fluid that comes out) After putting in the first gallon to replace it, fill the empty jug, then fill it again and put that much of the 2nd jug in. (This is for doing the pan drop, filter change, refill, likely to be more if you do a complete system drain).

What is transmission fluid capacity?


If you are just changing the fluid and filter, it should be around 5 quarts. The entire transmission holds about 12 - 15 quarts counting the torque converter.
It should tell you the actual amount depending on which trams you have in the owners manual.

Transmission fluid


Dropping the transmission pan will get the best results. Your truck will hold around 16qts of fluid. I would recommend removin the transmission pan and replacing the trans filter and then filling it back up with new fluid

Is there a transmission filter and how much fluid does it hold


Yes, it is inside the transmission. it doesnt hold fluid like a oil filter does, it is more of a flat filter acting as a screen.

You have to drop the transmission oil pan to change the oil, while you are changing the oil the filter is also replaced too.

1997 Chevy 1500 P/U 4x4 small V8. Transmission shifting issue.


you may be confusing the torque converter clutch engagement with o.d. this trans has a problem with the T.C.C. regulator valve wearing out the valve body bore. this will cause the converter clutch to engage only sometimes or not at all. this will set a P1870 code in the control module. when this code is stored in the controller, ( check engine light may or may not be on), it increases the pressure in the transmission causing the 1-2 shift to be harsh. ask a local tranny shop to scan the vehicle ( most will do this for free) if this is the problem they can either fix your valve body (sonnax parts) or replace it with an upgraded valve body. hope this helps
